Royal City Gogos Power of 10

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Grandmothers Campaign, Royal City Gogos are asking 1,000 people to donate $10 each to help us raise $10,000.  
Everyone knows, on some level, there is AIDS in Africa, people have died and there are orphans but few fully grasp the scope of the pandemic. In the past 30 years almost 30 million people have died leaving 17 million orphan children -- that's almost twice the number of children in all of Canada.

In the face of unbearable grief the grandmothers of Africa bury their own beloved children, cope with their own deteriorating health and begin to parent again with few resources.

 Ten years ago the Stephen Lewis Foundation took a leap of faith. Hoping the unique love that binds grandmothers to their grandchildren would transcend language and culture,  they brought Canadian and African grandmothers together to share their stories.  The plan worked and Canadian grandmothers rallied in solidarity with their African sisters.  

Since that time the Grandmothers Campaign has raised more than $25 million and grown to encompass more than 8000 women in 250 groups across Canada. The funds go directly to grassroots organizations in 15 countries in Africa operated by and for grandmothers.  African grandmothers have the expertise to address the needs of their communities and our resources give them the means rebuild lives and restore hope.    

Royal City Gogos challenge residents of New Westminster and our friends and family to help us celebrate 10 years of solidarity by raising $10,000 with donations of $10 (or more) to the Grandmothers Campaign.

Receipts will be give for donations over 
$20.  

With your support hope is rising in Africa for an AIDS-free generation. Won't you help us?
